MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — Wednesday was a beautiful night to get outside and check out vintage cars.

Cruise Night on Main Street happened in Middletown. Hundreds of classic cars and trucks lined the street in the city’s busy downtown district.

This was the first in-person event since COVID and the car show’s 25th anniversary. It comes just days after last week’s massive water main break on Main Street.

Local business owners said they were excited to see the large crowds. Those in attendance said they were happy to be back in person.

“It’s nice to see all the cars back out… having fun, nice to see everyone… friends,” said Michael Olszewski of Middlefield. “We’ll be here until 8 o’clock… having fun. You know, all the restaurants down here support the locals… gotta eat, so this is where we have our dinner.”

The car show kicked off at 4:30 p.m. and ran until 8 p.m.
